Microalgae production for applications in agro-industry and environment, including services for biotech companies and start-ups

Activity Start Date 30.06.2015
Advantages and Innovations: The biotechnology department has high qualification and experience in the microalgae production, working in the field since 1997. Its facilities and pilot plant are located in Gran Canaria, with one of the best climatology conditions to grow microalgae. The facilities include 5.000 m2 outdoor pond cultivation (raceways) system for microalgae mass culture and processing plant for the harvest biomass, under construction to 1 ha. 5 m3 in tubular photo-bioreactor. The Canary Islands represents one of the best region of Europe, because of his weather and without any kind of contamination, to produce microalgae or therefore to test and compare the productivity with any other regions. In addition, there are own native strains collections with high biotechnology capacities in different fields (food, feed, cosmetic, biofuels, colorants …).

Description of the offer: Microalgae represent an emerging biological resource of great importance for its potential applications in different fields such as food and feed, cosmetics or biofuels. Microalgae production needs a high degree of knowledge specialization, suitable facilities and environmental conditions to get safe and high quality products. In this sense, the research institute, through its biotechnology department, has extensive knowledge, technology, accredited experience, facilities and capacity to produce different microalgae. The facilities are placed in the Canary Islands, one of the best regions of Europe for microalgae cultivation, because of his climatology conditions and lack of pollution. The department has been involved in more than 18 projects (funded under National and European funds) on research, development, innovation, demonstration, specialized services and international cooperation, including the creation of a new start-up of microalgae production for food and feed sector. The institute offers specialized services in the field of microalgae production, such us: - Design, development and testing of microalgae production systems and their application with CO2 from combustion and/or biomethanization processes and renewable energy systems. - Productivity assays and demonstration plant devoted to microalgae production for different applications (human and animal foods, biofuels, natural colorants, Omega-3) Screening of microalgae. Intensive production of added value algae. - Services agreement: The research institute offers specific technological-consultancy services on microalgae production to private and public organizations such as new approaches to the agro industrial development or environmental applications of algae culture. It also offers business consultancy services for biotech companies, including incubation services for start-ups and hiring of facilities. - Technical cooperation agreements: The research institute offers their expertise for further development of the technical aspects in new products and services. - Research cooperation agreements: The research institute is interested in co-development of H2020 proposals on the topic Blue Growth: Unlocking the potential of Seas and Oceans (H2020-BG-2015-1)
